Join us as we welcome Slow author William Powers as he speaks about and signs his new book, New Slow City, on Thursday, September 24th at 6:00 pm.
About the Book:
New Slow City is the story of Will Powers and his wife moving into a 350-square-foot “micro-apartment” in Greenwich Village. Downshifting to a two-day workweek, Powers explores the viability of Slow Food and Slow Money, technology fasts and urban sanctuaries. Discovering a colorful cast of New Yorkers attempting to resist the culture of Total Work, Powers offers an inspiring exploration for anyone trying to make urban life more planet-friendly.
